Default Bluetooth headsets - Help me narrow it down

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,
Gaah! I'm getting so confused with information overload, and I'm hoping to narrow it down. Too many reviews, too many opinions.
I have a Bold 9700..

What's important to me:
1. A2DP streaming of Blackberry media.
2. Speech to Text, for incoming caller id and reply answer or ignore.
3. Comfortable, easily put on with one hand, and stays put.
4. Good Voice Recognition.

I currently have a Jabra BT8040, and a Jawbone Prime.

Jabra 8040: Pros: Voice Recognition very good. Plays BB MP3s.
Cons: No optional ear hook, Earbud/loop I need 2 hands and a mirror to put it on, Comfortable only if with the small size ear loop which falls out.

Jawbone Prime: Pros: Comfortable and easily put on.
Cons: No A2DP BB media, Voice Recognition is so bad it's actually hilarious. ("Call Peggy". Did you say Call Allison? No. Did you say Call Bob? No! Did you say Call Frank? .. No!!)

Your suggestions/recommendations?
Thanks in advance..
Tracy

Get the RIM HS700, great sound quality, cool features, and all you've requested above.

You can also try to voice train your BB for the Jawbone you have. If you open Options, voice dialing - select Adapt Voice. If you don't see that option, upgrade to the latest OS 5 for your 9700. Or get BB 6 - it also has that option. 9700/6.0.0.418 works great on my Bold. It seems like its almost ready for release

thanks All for your input!
I hadn't considered the RIM line.. The HS700 has excellent reviews left right and centre... and it is specifically made to work well with BB. I like that..However it is pricey ($130 CAD + 13% tax= $147) .. But I bought one last night on ebay (new in box) for half that. .. Nice!

Thanks again!

I'll (try to remember to) post back again after I've received it and tried it out.
